About This Project

This GCCC project consisted of 272 units in 43 separate buildings, including a Group Home and a Crèche, and extensive siteworks on a 16-acre site. The 43 buildings varied from three and four-bedroom traditional two-storey buildings to four-storey apartment blocks with brick/render/metal clad facades and KalZip roofing.

The late removal of overhead and underground ESB services necessitated working in an out of sequence manner and continued re-programming of tasks. Nevertheless, the works were handed over in phases in advance of the contract completion date.

  • Large scale/Multi Storey Residential Development
  • Extensive site development/hard & soft landscaping works
  • Detailed liaison with Utility Providers
  • Playgrounds, public facilities and street furniture

  • Riverside park works and protection of Pinkeen River
  • Diversion of overhead ESB lines
